The presence of wild peanut traits in modern crops has enabled farmers to cut back on fungicides and other chemical treatments, and even reduce fuel use and emissions.
Applied to different cultivars, this discovery has the potential to not only slash nitrate pollution, but also agricultural greenhouse gases
Meticulously ranking almost 6,000 foods, researched showed how simply swapping some ingredients for others could incrementally add hours and days to our lives and reduce environmental harms, too
The team found that landscapes with increased diversity produced ~17 to 18 bushels more per acre, of corn and wheat
The findings, from a study focused on Barcelona, found that the sustainability benefits of avoiding bottled water far outweighed the perceived health benefits of drinking it
Mycoprotein, microalgae, and mealworm, argue a group of researchers, would make food systems more resilient to climate change
It seems to work for other plants they've have tested as well—even under drought-like conditions
Researchers develop a nutrient-enriched, gel coating for seeds that soaks up moisture and could buffer plants against drought
Crop residue left on the ground locked up carbon in the soil four times longer than if they were cleared away
A research team set out to determine which cities would likely cope better (and worse) with climate threats to their food systems. Their advice: eat globally.
